Digitizing sponsorduPont (E.I.) de Nemours & Co. Inc., Rayon Department
Opens with a shot of an hourglass which leads into a montage of various household appliances and then moves into a discussion of how DuPont "makes life more liveable." The rest of the film tracks the manufacturing of rayon from raw material to finished product. Many nice shots:
Scene of men working in labs. CU beakers, chemicals, microscopes, etc.
Scenes of men reading meters and operating vats to wash raw rayon product.
Scenes of women participating in fabric-making process (and inspecting too)
Nice shots of various types of rayons in bolts and draped over tables on display for the camera.
Many good stock shots to be logged.
Oblique shot of dial telephone being dialed
Cars driving down New York avenue
Trucks and cars on main street of rural village (upstate New York?) good

Right on for Rayon!
Interesting film about the many wonderful benefits of Dupont Rayon and how it's manufactured. After briefly going through what kinds of fabrics can be made from the stuff, we go into the labratory for the remainder of the film to show how the fabric is chemically made. Wait! As boring as that sounds, it's actually quite interesting, as we see the stuff being made from chemical to filament. Quite fascinating are the parts on how multicolored fabrics are made, and how it actually becomes a filament in the first place. Reccomended to take a look at.
